Katherine Milhous has brought the story to light and has made it glow with color. Here is the story, told to the chidlren, of how Bethlehem was given its name; of the Christmas crib made for the children behind barricaded windows; of teh Indian attack turned aside by the music of the Christmas trombones. And if the children who read it go, some day, to Bethlehem for teh Christmas festival, they will have an experience that is rich indeed. Collectible, gift-quality first edition.
